"For us let it be enough to know ourselves to be in the place where God wants us, and carry on our work, even though it be no more than the work of an ant, infinitesimally small, and with unforeseeable results."
-- Abbé Monchanin

God Helps Whom?

They say "God helps those who help themselves."

That is wrong.  God helps those who cannot help themselves.  God helps those who help others.

Those who can help themselves have no need of God's help.  Too often they have no time to help others.

We need to attempt more than we can do so that we can experience God's help.  We need to be willing to try the wild and impossible that no one can achieve so that God may achieve it through us.

I can't help it, I need God's help most of the time.

How about you?
